Christmas in Busan! πŸŽ…πŸ»πŸŽ„

Travel

‘Tis with a heavy heart that I say the festive season is well and truly over. For everyone else anyway…

I have always enjoyed the month of December; seeing the twinkly lights ablaze around my city, decorating the tree at home with the mother’s best ornaments, splurging on cookie dough and Bailey’s hot chocolates at the Christmas markets in town. The joy for me doesn’t end come the evening of the 25th, after unwrapping my presents and gorging on a second helping of the most monumental Christmas dinner. Indeed, it doesn’t even come when the year draws to a close and I’m out and about, either at a bar or a house party screaming ‘Happy New Year!’ with a glass of prosecco in hand. For me, the festive season draws to a close after the first week in January; my birthday is the 7th, therefore meaning Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Years Eve, New Years Day and my birthday are all encompassed in to a fourteen day festive period. Therefore my festive season is not yet over; I still have three more days to enjoy the merriment!

Nonetheless, I thought it prudent to share the Christmas celebrations here in Busan and what better way to do so than with a whole load of Christmassy pictures! Mainly of the various decorations I saw whilst strolling the various city centres. I must admit, the pains of being away from home at such a time when family comes first have been firmly present. However Busan’s commitment to colourful, bright illuminations chirped me up quite a lot, reminding me that no matter where you are, there is always room for some festive cheer!

I’ll sign off by saying I hope you all had a wonderfully Merry Christmas and all the best for 2019!
